Naseeruddin Shah in big trouble after saying Muslim children unsafe in India, Hindu hardliners book ticket for Karachi
NEW DELHI - Veteran Indian actor Naseeruddin Shah lands in hot waters
A day after veteran Indian actor Naseeruddin’s Shah said that he fears for his children in India, head of a hardliner group booked his tickets to Karachi.
“If Naseeruddin Shah is scared in India, he should not delay in leaving for Pakistan. I have booked a ticket for him for August 14, the Pakistan Independence Day, so that India has one less traitor.”” Amit Jani, President of the group named Navnirman Sena, told *The Times of India.*
Amit Jani, who heads Indian state Uttar Pradesh’s Navnirman Sena, spoke to the Indian news outlet after the *‘Mirza Ghalib’*actor commented on a number of issues facing India.
Referring to the recent violence sparked by the discovery of a cow’s death, in which a police officer was killed by a mob, Shah had said that India has already witnessed that the death of a cow has more significance than that of a police officer.
A police officer Subodh Kumar Singh was attacked by a mob when he and his team had gone to a village to defuse tension after cow carcasses were found in a forest. The protests escalated after activists of right-wing group Bajrang Dal came to the area and blocked a road with a truck carrying the dead cows.
